K9 Kamp–We’re Walkin’ on Sunshine–or Rainshine…

The week one challenge for Koly and Kelly’s K9 Kamp was called “Walking on Sunshine” and was all about getting out and walking with your dog.  We only got to get “out” and walk once, the other times we had to walk inside our house because it was raining.  We did have fun when we got to walk at the lake on a sunny day.

Now, here’s a little disclaimer…Grandma was the official photographer for our walking pictures…  That should be enough said right there!  She didn’t realize her camera was set on “Motion Picture” mode, so instead of having 30 still pictures, we have 30 2 second-long videos…sigh.  Most of them are of Grandma’s foot and the ground.  So the really blurry/pixelated pictures are still images of videos…sigh again.  🙂

Just getting to the park.

Shaking off some of that lake water–ready for a walkie!

Trying to get her to climb up on that tree trunk, but she wouldn’t do it.  Party poooooper.
Crossing the bridge to nowhere.
YIPPING!  Soooo embarrassing…she saw a squirrel or something and went psycho on the leash–yipping like she was being tortured!

Still on the lookout for that squirrel…

Back into walking now.

Checking out the paddle boats!
Cooling off in the lake.  I didn’t bring our Flexi leash so she couldn’t go deep enough to swim.  😦  (And I wasn’t willing to get my feet soaked!!).

Fascinated by a pine cone that was halfway buried in the sand.

Still messing with that pine cone.

…and still messing with it…

Riley doesn’t just like to walk on land…she likes to try to walk on water, too!

Tossing her a pine cone to chew up.
 Headed back to the car after a fun day of walking/wading.
 
Pretty girl on the way home!  Happy as can be.

Now, here’s where we had to get a little creative…and walk inside.  I carried a toy with me and walked around our downstairs.  I would’ve thrown in some stairs to get our thighs looking good, but Riley isn’t supposed to be doing a whole lot of stair climbing because of her hip dysplasia.  Climbing stairs is difficult for her, so we just walked around downstairs.  The downstairs of our house sort of forms a circle–you can walk all the way around the stairs, so we just did laps around the downstairs.

Good eye contact, Riley!

C’mon, slowpoke!  She wasn’t quite sure what to think of walking around inside because it was raining.  I kept trying to get her to walk AROUND our dining room table, but she kept cutting through and cheating…little snot!  🙂

We started “jogging” a little bit.  Just a slow jog…more like a fast walk.
We had fun doing our “walkies” for this challenge and can’t wait for the next challenge!  And hopefully our weather will be nicer for the next challenge!

  1. Great pictures! You two did a fantastic job on week 1, and I love how you adapted it to inside when it wasn't exactly sunshine anymore. Riley seems to love all of it. I love the picture of him in the water, lifting his legs so high. See you for week 2!Peggy, Kelly & Brooks

  5. Congratulations on week one! I love all the pictures, and Riley is beautiful. I think my favorite pic. is the "walking on water" one. Paige and I also had to do part of our walking indoors, and used our stairs. Now, on to week 2! Good luck from Paige & Donna
